coast guard. this is essential. this is why we have the infrastructure commitment that i have been talking about ever since i started working for the city. i have had the pleasure of working with john. his expertise and his team out here, retired as well as current, have made a strong commitment to make sure we have the modern facilities to take care of us. guess what? on the eve of america's cup, there is renewed use of our waterways for recreation, but also increase ferry services going on because of all the alternative traffic use we have to have. it is part of our airport operation, because our airport is on the water. we are having a record number of airplanes landing. we must modernize our facilities for the future use. that is why i love the airport. it is always looking out for the next generation effort, making sure the infrastructure can respond to that. i also enjoy the fact that it is working with our fire department to really house the equipment we have to use. whether it is the mou spoke -- moose boat -- i love that name, because it was a nickname for me. from that to
coast guard auxiliaryist, 35,000 volunteers, some you may see outside the gate and say, wow, the coast guard hangs onto its people a long time. they're median age, older than me, but they volunteer their services, including during an emergency response. and they, too, are ics trained to support in a time of emergency. >> sustaining these skills is something that, as you say, jody, is a deliberate action. we're in the process of doing that right now. we have built san francisco fleet week and its associated exercises into our training continuum, and we'll continue to do so into the future. this will give us several milestones on our calendar that will get our heads back into this very complex arena. so, we certainly understand that. i think we're going to be seeing guidance coming from the secretary of the defense in the next couple of years that will elevate this in terms of our responsibilities and mission sets. so, we're in the process of laying the groundwork for that right now at camp pendleton. >> ann? >> just to build on what general spiese said, fleet week, this used to be or st
the different authorities that the coast guard can bring to bear in different situations. but could you talk a little bit about the partnerships and relationship and how that plays across the coast guard mission set? >> well, first i'll talk about my capacity challenges and my area of responsibility covers the rocky mountains to madagascar. the same area of responsibility as admiral lochlear except they have the arctic and antarctic as well. so, obviously with 13,000 people covering that aor, a little over 200 ships, i'm very dependent on partnerships. i work with 71 countries with whom i have 65 bilateral agreements with those entities. but everything really starts at the most local level first. so, it's appropriate to hear from captain stow and the network of partnerships that she's dealt here in the bay area, but we have this lattice work that goes across my entire pacific region. and then i need to focus on what do i do in the event of a threat right now in dealing with the arctic. what if i have a deep water horizon spill there? because now it affects the nate and i have indigenous trib

. >> and i'll just say 10% of the active duty coast guard makes its home here in the bay area. if we're a smaller coast guard tomorrow, we'll still have 10% of the coast guard here in the bay area. this is a critical hub for the coast guard. and when you look at the pacific, i expect to see our numbers to go up over time. so, i am not concerned in the least. my house and the 20 pacific area commanders before me, if you look out the door, that's my house right up from the light house. and, so, we are strategically located here in the bay. so, we will be here for the long term as well. >> any other questions from the audience? okay. if i could ask you one last one, that is, as you -- a number of you at the table have participated since 2010. so, have you looked at your broadened responsibilities and engaged in the world or engaged regionally and gaps have been identified, could you offer an aha moment for yourself personally in the process, or the gaps that still remains that is still troublesome to you that needs to be addressed? >> to me, my aha moment was last year. it was my first
incredible coast guard rescue. this happened 170 miles off the coast of virginia beach, virginia. that boat you're looking at is the island breeze. there are four people aboard. the boat became disabled and the coast guard came to the rescue. the first person on the boat jumped into the water. as you can see here, they are lowering the coast guard swimmer in, and he swims to them, puts a lifejacket on them, and then they get hoisted up. they make it look easy. >> i'm not surprised these guys needed rescuing. it's pretty windy out there. choppy seas, too. >> look at the boat once everybody is aboard the helicopter. >> it almost seems they got him off just in time. >> that boat was rocking. >>> dog really doesn't want to walk. >> come on, rico. come on. rico, come. come on, rico. let's go for a walk. want to go for a walk? come on. come on, rico. come on. you want to go for a walk? come on. let's go, buddy. come on. it's going to be fun. come on. come on. >> one of my favorite parts about this job is when we let to let our viewers be the star of the show. this guy uploaded a video on rightthi

inhabitted island. as we approach, the japanese coast guard speeds alongside making sure we do not get any closer. for decades, these islands were all but forgotten, the last handful of japanese setters left here during world war 2:00. but now a newly emboldened china has decided to assert itsdz claim. and as if on cue, the chinese make their entrance. the skipper of our boat has just been told by the japanese coast guard that we have to move around to the north of the island because they say there are chinese ships off to the south here. they are worried they will come and board us. things now start to get very busy. four chinese ships are clearly visible, well inside japan's territorial waters. overhead, a japanese air force plane swoops low, but the chinese ships steam on, undeterred. until last month it was inconceivable that japan and china could come to blows over this uninhabitted groupon of islands. yet look at the situation today. there are four chinese cutsers and two japanese cutsers in my sight. there is a tense stand-off going on. the japanese coast guard is very nervous about
's a single-engine, single-seat, carrier-based airplane. the coast guard used these primarily for searching for people in distress on the ocean and also to pull off rescues. there's a hoist that you can see right there that would enable a crewman to descend into the water. you could put an injured person in that basket, hoist them up into the helicopter, and there would be medical personnel aboard the helicopter. the pilots are officers, graduates of flight school, and you would have two enlisted men back here. one is a jumper -- the rescue jumper. scott, why don't you sit up there in the pilot's seat? as you can see, there are a large number of instruments on the instrument panel and many of them are missing, but that's because when the military gives us these, they strip out the instruments. the stick is controlling the direction. the collective is controlling the angle of the blades, which dictates what speed you're going at, and your feet -- that's maneuvering the rudder left and right, so it's very, very, very busy in these things. now, this particular airplane here is a pt-26 cornell.
